The Winnipeg Rowing Club is a rowing club based in Winnipeg, Manitoba founded in 1881 by cousins John Galt II & George Galt. The club was incorporated on February 2, 1883, with John Norquay as Club Patron, Thomas Renwick as President, and George Galt as Club Captain.

From 1902 to 1906, the Winnipeg Rowing Club had an ice hockey team in the Manitoba Hockey Association. They were league champions in 1903 and 1904 and challenged the Ottawa Silver Seven for the Stanley Cup in 1904. Players on the team that challenged for the Stanley Cup include William Breen and Hockey Hall of Famer Joe Hall.
